When I was a young buck, we used to cruise Williamson Road on the weekends. The cops and the local businesses hated it. Times change, and this weekend the Star City Motor Madness Car and Truck Show takes over Williamson with Cruise Night tonight from 6-10. Classic and muscle cars, hot rods, antiques and more, so bring a lawn chair and try to use the side streets off Williamson to get to your destination. Tomorrow, the Car and Truck Show with over 400 vehicles will be held on Jefferson Street between Campbell and Elm avenues from 10-4. There's also a silent auction and the whole event raises cash for the Virginia Museum of Transportation. But it doesn't cost anything to look and drool over these cars!
Explosions! Lens flare! Giant metal robots! "Transformers: Age of Extinction" hits theaters this weekend. The plot of this one: doesn't make any difference whatsoever! Your kids are gonna love it, and the reviews all pretty much read like this: "If you're a fan of the Transformers movies, this is one of the better ones." Mark Wahlberg stars. "Transformers: Age of Extinction" is rated PG-13. Let's blow some stuff up.
